Pros

Schedule versatility and open door policy. Time off without being penalized if shift is covered. versatility in job sights.

Cons

Payscale could be better for regular officers. Company pay raises should be put in by the company regardless of contract.,

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fight for higher wages for regular officers and you will lower the turn over ratio. Quality people will stay. Change it into a career instead of just a job.

    Pros

    It is a paycheck and only worth a desperate need to work until you find something else.

    Cons

    If you stand up for yourself or others: you are fired for insubordination. Veterans are used in this system as they hire a hero and treat them like they are the Taliban.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get ready for an all American Security Corporation do put your low life corporation down under. Many companies look at the red circles as a sign of cheap American business.

    I worked at Securitas Security Services USA full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    None. I'm surprised this company is still making such big profits when it's internal structures and policies are absolutely horrible.

    Cons

    Where to start. First there's low pay (typical complaint), the managers (which you have several of, not just one) micromanage like crazy and are always on your case 24/7. Priorities are way out of control. They expect you to do the work of 5 people without any help or proper communication. They are 100% a revolving door company - they hire and fire for no good reason, and they couldn't care less about doing it. The newcomers have to pick up the leftover slack, and soon enough get fired because they aren't performing "up to company standards" - whatever those are. Everyone there is miserable, and nobody likes their coworkers, meaning that not a single person is enjoyable to work with. If at all possible, stay away from this company and wait for a much better opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micromanaging so much. if you give someone a task, expect that they'll do it without asking them 20 times if it's complete. Set up clear and realistic goals for your employees, because then they'll know what's actually expected of them. Don't blame the newer employees for having poor communication when higher management doesn't give anyone the time of day for a conversation or some simple questions.
